Best and worst states for docs--from their POV
for the patient--you have to decide.
BEST STATES (from WalletHub)
District of Columbia
Nebraska has the highest annual wage for surgeons (adjusted for cost of living)--$307,590.
This is 2.5 times the District of Columbia average for surgeons.
Idaho has the lowest number of doctors per 1,000 residents--DC has ten times as many.
Florida has the highest expected share of people 65 and older by 2030. That would be 27.1% of the population. Utah is lowest--13.2%.
Wyoming has the most disciplinary actions taken against physicians--with south Carolina coming in with the least.
North Dakota has the lowest amount of malpractice awards per capita..35 times lower than NY!
Wisconsin has the lowestt malpractice insurance rate--New York's is six times higher.
I always check my doctors with the medical board to see if they have paid out for malpractice. Do you?
